Instagram has become the ultimate platform for people to socialize through photos and videos. The concept of only posting photos and videos without text was new when it was first introduced, but it was quickly embraced by users around the world. Because it is primarily focused on visual content, people started to put more effort into making themselves look perfect in their photos.
However, no one is perfect, and the pressure to be perfect on Instagram can lead people to go overboard with editing their photos. In the past, photo editing and manipulation software was only used by professionals, but now, anyone can download these tools for free on their phones. Editing has become so easy that absolutely anyone can do it, but not everyone knows how to use these tools properly.
In their pursuit of the perfect Instagram photo, some people have edited their photos to the point where it is obvious to everyone that the photo has been edited. Even if the person who posted the photo doesn’t realize it, many other people can spot the edits. In fact, there is even a subreddit, r/Instagramreality, where people share these sightings with each other. This subreddit was created in 2017 and is still active to this day.
We’ve compiled a list of some of the most unrealistic edits that people have posted on Instagram. While these photos may be funny, they were all legitimately spotted on the platform. See if you can spot the edits for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments. You can also vote for your favorite posts to move them to the top of the list.
